Crescendo (55plus)

Every person at Countryside who is 55 plus, growing in their relationship with Jesus Christ and engaged in His kingdom ministry.

Daily 10,000 people reach the age of 65.  By 2030, one in five Americans will be over 65, by 2035 there will be more people over 65 than under the age of 18!  The Baby boomer and older generations are to be mobilized for ministry! Rather than retirement, we seek to re-tool, re-invent, and re-imagine what God may have for us in this season of life as we are challenged to participate in minstries by, with, and for older adults.

Our goals
To grow Spiritually, Physically, Intellectually, Emotionally, in Community, while Serving God and others.

Crescendo is not a program; it's a mindset.  It's not an activity; it's an attitude. Each month Crescendo will offer opportunities for older adults to grow in all of these areas as they walk with Jesus and build His kingdom in this fruitful season of life.
